Hi
I am looking for a good DSLR camera bag for my 60D with grip and 4 lenses, also my canon Legria video camera to be put in one bag.

So what is the best one to use?

Lowepro Flipside 400 AW
or
Lowepro Fastpack 250/350

And what camera bag do you use.;)

Thank you

I was looking at it in a shop but there seems to have a large enpty spaces were you put your dslr camera, and there is no way to stop it moving in the bag when you are walk also you have to take the bag off to change the lens over, and the tripod is at the bottom of the bag, I think lowepro could have added a strap at the side or on the back of the bag would have been nice than the bottom,

But I like the fact that you can add a 15" 4 laptop in the bag is nice,;)

The only thing I am not sure of is the side opening to take out the camera, I think many thefts can open it easy that is what I want to ask you have you found any problems with this when you travel?

You did not say what bag you would use or have.

Lowepro fastpack!! I owned the 250 loved it!!! When i got a 17'' laptop I instantly purchased the 350 at the same time. awesome bag in everyway. only 2 downsides for me verse a 100 positives. No AW cover & no tripod holder, but in no way takes away from it being a fantastic photo backpack.

As for you concern of possible theft from the side opening, I would not worry about it, the zipper actually zips all the way around the bag, so you can stick it under the flap, so someone would have to unbuckle 2 clips, just to get to the zipper, then after undoing the 2 clips, unzipper it while you are wearing it, to get to your camera, all while you dont notice a thing, which I don't feel can happen. Anyway when I travel, I put a luggage lock on that zipper anyway for the peace of mind, cost $2.

Also this bag does not stand out, or seem like a photo backpack in my opinion, especially in all black, so it wont stand out in publc or scream photo equiptment!!!

I own the fastpack 250 and I can't see it fitting 4 lenses unless 2 of them are 50 1.8 sized..it fits one body with a 70-200 attached, one flash, and 2 small lenses in the padded compartment, though I suppose you could fit one more in the upper compartment but it lacks the padding that the bottom does.

I change my mind on the fastpack, now I will go for the Lowepro flipside 400 AW, it will give me more room for future lenses and another dslr, it's better to have the extra space than not have it.


Bye:D

If you want to see what they look like inside if you haven't already, just check out the lowepro site, they have diagrams for some of them.

I agree. I have the 200 which I believe is the same size as the 250 minus the laptop compartment. I can get my T2i with Tamron 70-300 attached plus my 18-55 and 15-85 lenses and that's it. No room for a fourth lens in the padded area.

My travel tripod is in a bag and I attach it to my 200 using the straps that secure the bottom flap. The straps go through the bags drawstring and hold it firmly and securely in place.

Out of all Lowepro bags I owned and tried, Flipside 400 is the best.
- Extremely comfortable with generous padding everywhere, all day hauling with the bag full of gear is a breathe.
- Ingenious flipside design, ability to access gear AND change lens on the go w/o taking bag off is a huge plus. I've started switching my lenses more frequently because it's so easy.
- High internal capacity with relatively compact external dimensions (outside it's not that much bigger than Flipside 300), because 400 contours back so well, it doesn't look big when worn.
- Can fit body with 70-200 F2.8 and TC attached.
- Can be used in combination with sling straps like BlackRapid, you can flip it w/o BR getting in the way, it was a bit of a problem with Lowepro Slingshot
